turn signal flasher is clicking no turn signal on, no brake lights, replaced flasher, no change
clicking comes and goes, dang..............
Turn signal intermittently clicks as if it is engaged. Signals themselves appear to work normally however
blinker sound at all times even when turn signals not in use
Mechanic said correction required pulling out entire dash / or under dash...Said not to worry about it...
Drives me crazy. Keeps clicking after it is turned off. Often wonder if this is the case for the actual turn signals. Are they shutting off or continuing to blink?
Clicking noise but not in use
The first occurrence was a couple of years ago, then it stopped on its own. It has started again after very cold temps have hit our region.
Same deal - turn signal clicking sound happening when signal not in use. All else seems fine.
Turn signal sounds like it is on when it is off
Clinking noise will occur even when blinker is not on.
